    [DFW - Frisco, TX] New pool construction: advice needed

    Hi, tgrinchy I talked to my PB about RS system upgrade, and this upgrade costs additional $820. Does it sound reasonable? And, PB said I would need to change the settings probably twice a year with PDA (maybe seasonally?) once I make one setting and if I am not traveling a lot, I may not find...

    Thank you tgrinchy for letting me know about RS system... In fact, I have zero knowledge about this RS vs PDA system... I will ask my PB for the RS system and understand the differences. It looks like aqualink is needed for and goes with both RS and PDA, right??

    Yup, I also feel that PB would not drop much from my initial quote when removing the Polaris system.... I will ask and see how total comes out.. hopefully, a robot is a cheaper option..

    Hi, Jimrahbe Yes, it appears that I definitely need to remove the Polaris system and get a robot. Do you have any idea of how much cost drop I should expect from my quote when I remove the Polaris system? As I told JJ_Tex above, I already received a quote with the Polaris system and would like...

    Hi, spd500, I thought about adding SWG later but also concerned about the warranty void too as you indicated..so I will keep pushing although my designer tries to persuade.. I just wonder why many PBs are against SWG.. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    Good point, Jimrahbe, and I may have to challenge my designer at the selections meeting. This is my pool that I pay for, and I will definitely get SWG but just get worried if my PB requests me to sign a waiver on some of their work warranty due to SWG... (I saw one posting that said this) By...

    Thank you JJ_Tex for your comment.. This is my first pool and I am very new to all pool knowledge at this moment, and thus this TFP has been really helpful for me to learn...that's how I learned the convenience and advantage of SWG. My pool builder recommended Ozone system but was not very...
